Andy Murray Wins At Wimbledon, Ending 77-Year British Drought

LONDON (July 7, 2013)--Andy Murray became the first British man in 77 years to win the Wimbledon title, as he beat Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in Sunday’s final.

The last time a British player won the Wimbledon title before Sunday was in 1936 when Fred Perry claimed the title.

Murray, who lost to Roger Federer in last year's final, won his second major title after last year's U.S. Open.

Murray and Djokovic played each other in a Grand Slam final for third time in the last four majors, with Murray winning the U.S. Open and Djokovic taking this year's Australian Open.

Djokovic, the top-seeded Serb who won the 2011 title at the All England Club, had won the last three matches between the two and still holds an 11-8 head-to-head edge.
